romney's running mate, trying to unseat president obama. do you believe that the white house purposely misled the american people on benghazi to try to beat you and mitt romney and win the election? >> i don't know the answer to that question, so i'm not even going to speculate, but that's what good oversight does. that is what this investigation is all about, which is why did they continue to perpetuate this story, which they knew was not true, and what was the reason for doing so? so rather make a conclusion before an investigation has been completed, we just need to investigate this for the sake of good government. that's what the legislative branch does, what the separation of powers is all about. accountability of the executive branch by the legislative branch. so i don't want to speculate as to why and what they did until we have all of the information. i think what we know right now is that they were misleading. >> chris: we have less than two minutes left, congressman. when you look at all these scandals -- irs, the subpoena of the ap records, benghazi, around as i po

obama white house has some real explaining to do about their behavior. >> i think that is true, but i think that the media needs to be looking in the mirror or, as well. for example, the tea party and other conservative groups have been complaining about unfair targeting by the irs for the last three years. the press ignored them. given that if it was low-level aids, just people in cincinnati doing this and they didn't really have any political acumen, then it wouldn't have been hard for a reporter to pick up the phone and find out or for white house communication to find out if there was a problem. >> we already know washington d.c. knew about it. >> i know. >> let me ask you a question. i would think that all of these things really bother you in terms of the irs intimidating people because of their political point of view. >> i agree. >> benghazi, four dead americans and we did nothing before when requests were help were out there -- >> i don't agree with you on that. >> they were toll to stand down. >> i don't agree. >> and a web of lies was built afterwards. now the a.p. story.

president obama, link the white house to somehow ordering or are wink and go nodding to the -- wink and go nodding to the -- winking and nodding on the agencies. and you have democrats pointing out this started when a bush appointee was the commissioner and the inspector general who issued the report revealing this behavior was also a bush appointee who testified at this hearing. he said in that i g's report there is no evidence of political bias, this is a bone headed approach to put in words in a search engine so you could zero in on these groups. when the tea party emerged it sure looked like a political party. and i think it is an explanation as to why they singled out that phrase and other phrase and the real scandal here is the abuse of the 501 c-4s that claim to be social welfare organizations. they are not supposed to be doing political activity and it sure looks like a lot of these groups use these designations and they almost half or just under half of their behavior is political. it is a stupid way to ferret out these groups and people are going to pay they are going to lose
